The fall season is already upon us which means it’s time to make a switch in not just your wardrobe but also your fall skincare routine. With seasonal changes bringing new demands on your skin, it’s essential to transition your skincare regimen to suit the weather. In this case, fall comes with a drop in humidity and as expected, skin dryness.
We recently saw so many summer skincare trends that showed us how to make the best of the hot weather whilst protecting the skin from the harsh effects. The same rules will apply for fall making sure that no matter what the season brings, your skin will remain flawless all year round.
So without further ado, let’s check out some must-try fall skincare trends for 2022.
11 Fall Skincare Trends You Have To Try Out
1. Embrace the Humidifier: A Trend to Save Your Skin in Fall
There are several advantages to having a humidifier, especially during the fall and winter seasons so we adore this trend. Stepping into the warmth of your home away from the low humidity levels outside is really not enough to protect your skin from the dry air. In fact, all that dry heat in your home can also be damaging to your skin. The effects of this would be flaking and cracking of your skin.
Your best bet would be to get a small skin-friendly humidifier for your bedroom (or if you can afford a bigger one for the living area do so) to help keep the air in your home moist.
2. Beware of Hot Baths: The Impact on Your Skin in Fall
With the constant rain and chilly wind during this fall season, it’s normal to crave a hot soak in the bathtub or shower. This feels great for relieving some stress and warming up your body but it’s not what your skin needs this season. Hot baths will dry out your skin by affecting your skin’s natural oil production. It’s already dry outside (and inside too). Do you really want to further dry out your skin? Probably not.
The next best thing to do would be to take lukewarm baths as this would do your skin a lot of good!
3. SPF Beyond the Hype: A Timeless Skincare Trend
Every skincare trend always includes spf for a very valid reason. There’s really never a season where you don’t need SPF even on days you’re not stepping out. Apart from protecting your skin from harsh UV rays and skin cancer, SPF also helps to maintain your skin by warding off wrinkles, sunburns, irregular skin shades, and so on.
A minimum of SPF 30 broad-spectrum should be enough to get the job done.
4.Hydration Beyond Hype: The Power of Water for Your Skin and Health
You’ve probably guessed what we mean here and we love that it’s a hot trend! A lot of influencers are opening up more about how important it is to drink a lot of water which also means hydrating your skin inside out.
This will do not just your skin but your organs so much good. Even though there’s an expected amount of water to drink daily, you can improvise by taking fruits that have a lot of water content. You would need to stock up on watermelons, cucumbers, strawberries, lettuce, and many more.
5. Simplicity Prevails: Embrace Minimalism in Your Fall Skincare Routine
Moving forward with some fall skincare trends, there’s also a lot of rave about using minimal products this season. For example, instead of using an 8-step daily skincare regimen, you can stick to a 3-4 step routine. Simply start with cleansing with a gentle cleanser like the Mayan Magic Face Bar, use a mild toner like the Mayan Magic face toner, use a thick moisturizer, and put on your Spf or serum at night.
This trend also speaks against waste by buying too many skincare products that end up decorating your bathroom shelves. Stick to the basics this fall and make the best use of your favorite products.
6. Exfoliate But Not Too Much
It’s almost hard to believe that people still don’t understand the importance of exfoliating. We are glad that our trendsetters have mentioned (again) that you need to exfoliate your skin because it really does make a difference. Whilst layering your skincare products and SPF help protect your skin barriers when you step out, it’s also important to deep clean your pores to get rid of buildup. Skincare products that remain in your pores can clog them making you prone to breakouts.
This fall, we’re advised to exfoliate at most 1-2 times a week. Too much exfoliation or using harsh chemical-based products can harm your skin tissues. Turn towards milder scrubs and also be lightheaded when applying it all over your face and body (yes you got that right!).
7. Elevate Your Skincare: Prioritize Eye Cream for Delicate Skin Care
Eye cream is also undermined in skincare routines and the beauty influencers are calling us out. This is because the skin under your eyes is so delicate and is more prone to dryness. The skin around your eyes would be the first part to make visible the change in weather so you need to pay extra attention to it.
This skincare trend has to be one of the most important ones because eye cream also protects you from the elements during every season. In essence, using eye cream more often than not this fall (and winter) would be a good idea.
8. Add Vitamin C To The Mix
Vitamin C does so much for the skin and this fall, we’re advised to include it in our skincare regimen from time to time. Vitamin C doesn’t just prevent sun damage but it also improves the production of elastin and collagen making your skin firmer, smooth, and bright. Adding Vitamin C to your skincare routine from time to time will also help get rid of fine lines and wrinkles.
Apart from consuming fruits rich in Vitamin C, you can also include skincare products with Vitamin C like serums, toners, or cleansers.
9. Bring In The Thicker Moisturizers
Yes, we know that during summer, moisturizers with lighter consistency were the rage but for fall, your skin needs a thick layer of moisturizer to retain more moisture due to the dry air. During fall just like we’ve pointed out, your skin is prone to dryness making it produce more sebum which in turn causes breakouts.
Enriching your skin (face and body) with moisturizers that are thick in consistency helps to lock in moisture.
10. Beware Of Moisture-Stripping Ingredients
If you expected this to become more emphasized this season that makes both of us! Our skincare gurus are advising us to stay away from products with ingredients that strip your skin of moisture like alcohol and fragrance.
They are more common in cleansers and toners so be sure to check out the ingredients before purchasing new products. Stick to cleansers and toners like the Mariposasgentle soapless cleanser or the Mayan Magic face toner.
11. Give Care To Your Whole Body
Lastly, the fall trend of this year is prioritizing full body care. The skincare gurus are telling us to invest in body products that also have effective ingredients like retinoids and so on.
Giving equal love to your body as well as your face would create a beautiful, healthy, and even tone.
We hope you love these fall skincare trends as much as we do! Give them a try this fall and you’ll be glad you did.
